Brexit Briefings on Employment

The Warwick Brexit Briefings on Employment draw on existing Warwick expertise and research to put forward proposals for the development of employment policy as it is redesigned, post-Brexit, by the UK Government. The policy issues covered will be those of unemployment and training, job creation and loss, migration and skills, and employment rights.

Experts from the Warwick Institute for Employment Research, School of Law and Warwick Business School's Industrial Relations Research Unit evaluate the employment policy, rights, skills and labour market implications of the UK's withdrawal from the EU and make research-based recommendations for future development of policy in these areas, as the UK leaves the EU.
Each paper will be launched at a lunchtime briefing, taking place over four consecutive weeks in November and early December 2017 at Westminster.

The first briefing was published on 14 November 2017 and looks at migration and skills.

Future papers will cover:
• Job Loss and Job Creation – Pitfalls and Opportunities? (Thursday 23 November)
• Training Funds for the Unemployed (Monday 27 November)
• Employment Rights (Thursday 7 December)
The papers aim to bring expert knowledge to bear on the challenge of reshaping a standalone UK employment policy.
